Saturday, - - July - 7, 1894
Almost evervrailroad in the United
States is effected by the strike
against the Pullman Car Co.
The State of Indiana has a $6,000,
000 bonded debt outstanding, and
not a single bond is heldby a citizen
of Indiana.
Three thousand three hundred and
forty-one ships, of 7,65i9,000 tons,
passed through the Suez Canal in
1893, yieklmg eisty-one million in
duoes.
Two negroes are in jail at Forsyth,
Mo., and everybody-;is taking a look
at tlhem. There are no negro resi
dents in Taney county, and many of
the people have never seen one.
A machine for counting coins has
been put into use at the Philadelphia
mint. It can count 1000 coins a
minute. We do not need any in
Providence. We can count all our
coins without machinery.
Texaa has furnished the first bale
of new cotton for 1894-two days
earlier than ever before. It weighed
500 pounds and brought 39 cents a
pound, the New York Cotton Ex
change being the purchaser.
Rising Sun, Indiana, has a pop
ulation of 1,175; of this number 550
are church members; 628 are regular
church attendants; 545 do not attend
church; 395 attend Sunday school,
and 770 who'do not attend.
$15,000 worth of bonds of the
Arkansas, Little Rock, Pine Bluff
& New Orleaus R. R., were sold in
New York the other day for $450.
It does not look like if that railroad
was in a prosperous condition.
Collections of all kinds have had
their days; at one time it was spoons,
then stamps, then autographs, pho
graphs, buckles, and now the latest
is a collection of buttons. Every
girl is making a collection and buttons
arc going up. Do not be surprised
if your best girl asks you for a button
of your waistcoat, you will know the
meaning of it.
Twenty-five. divorces were granted
by the Allegheny county (Pa.) court
in one day last week, but only forty
nine persons were effected. G. G.
Thornburg and Charles Asche were
divorced from the same woman at the
same time. The latter was her first
husband, and she married the former
without being divorced from Asche,
who used her second marriage as
ground fot his divorce.
Since ihe big strike against the
Pullman Palace Car Company, per
iehable goods in large cities have
gone up. In Chicago, lemons, whtch
ordiqarily sell from $2.00 to $2.5Q a
box, are quoted at $10 a box, while
thousands of boxes are rottening
between New Orleans and Chicago.
Ice, which is ordinarily $2.00 a ton,
has risen to $10 a ton, and is scarce
at those figures. Strawberries, mel
ons and all kinds of garden products
have advanced in like fashion.
The States is pretty severe on
the present legislature. It says:
"There are certain members of the
Legislature who pretend to be Very
indignant because the States stig
matized the present body as the
most contemptible that Louisiana
has had since the State was redeemed
by the Democracy. The States still
adheres to its statement, but wishes
to repeat what was said in yester
day's edition, that it recognizes and
cheerfully acknowledges the fact
that themre are some truly honest and
patriotie men who are membrs of
the present General Assembly, and
who woukld, it they could, give the
people ballot reform. Many of
these gentlemen, we are proud to
say, are friends- of the States, but
they are powerless beeasase they are
in the minority. The present Legis
lature is eontemptible, we again

FACTS.
* Our attention was called this week
to several items contained in the
semi annual report of the Board of
Conunissioners of the 5th Louisiana
Levee I)istrict.
The items especially called to our
attention were the divers expenses ,
connected with the Secretary's office.
We confess that it was quite a sur
prise to us. It appears that the
Secretary gets a salary of $1,800 a
yecar, that the office of the board is
nominally located at Delta, but
really at Vickaburg, but as the
Secretary lives in Concordia par
ish, he is allowed a compensation
for attending each meeting at Vicks
burg; it appears further, that he is
furnished with a daily newspaper by
the board, also fuel for his office
wherever he lives. But it is better
to give the items as we find them
put down here and there in the re
port ot Secretary Shields himself.

Ap'l 1-W. II. Shields, expenses trip

May --W. HI. Shields, incidentals
and sundry accounts ............. 35 00
Total ... .............. ........ 351 00
$351.00 in ten months, or $35 a
month for attending the meetings
and incidental expenses, so that-Mr.
Shields, counting his salary of $150
a month, has gotten $185 a month
from the levee board.
There is a reason in all things
and we, poor tax-payers, cannot
well afford to pay Mr. Shields' ex
penses, because he does not choose
to live in Delta or in Vicksburg as
he should.
Another item our attention was
called to was the livery bill of the
Board. We quote from the report :
Jan. 4, '94-Henry Dies,hire of teams
and feed ...... ............. ...$ 65 00
May 14, '94-II. C. McOGuire, hire of
teams since Dec, 1893............. 204 25
Total ................... ........$359 25
That is from Dec. '93 to May 14,
'94, $359.25 were spent for team hire
by the officials of the board in this
and Madison parish. Apart from
the visit of the President and Secre
tary, which, if we remember right,
was made by them on horseback, we
do not remember to have seen any
member of our levee board hiring
teams from Mr. McGuire. Our
Commissioners use their own teams.
The only ones that we saw were
the engineers, and $359.25 in five
months for livery bill is a pretty
good bill. Remember, Mr. Tax
payer, that when you see a fiee air
of horses pulling an engineer d
his assistant that you are paying
dear for it; it costs you only at the
rate of *70 a month. Could not
the engineers, who get a good salary
from the Levee Board, pay their
own livery bill; if they did, it would
not be so large. Here is food for
reflection, and matter for action.
The anti-miscegenation law has
Ipassed, and awaits the Governor's
signature.
Only 98 degrees in the shade in
New Orleans on Saturday last; the

plus fund to $15,000.
The citizens of New Orleans tend
ered last Monday a banquet toJustice
White of the United States Supreme
Court; about one hundred guests
were present, and fine speeches were
made by Justice White and others.
The Louisiana Electrie Light Corm
pany of New Orleans discharged two
of its head workmen on Saturday last
for some canse, and fifty others'quit

and the trie~ was esled oft.
THE LEPERS AND THE LEGIS
LATURE.
A parFount duty of the legisla
ture is to provide for the unfortu
nate lepers, resident of the State.
The number of lepers as computed
by competent authorities, several of
them eminent physicians, and one of
them a member of the board of the
Charity Hospital, amounts to five
thousand in Louisiana. In presence
of a disease so incurable and prob
ably contagious, which has assumed
an endemic form in some portions of
Louisiana, the State has manifested
a degree of apathy and listlessness,
winch astonishes one as he becomes
better acqdgnted with the situation.
Heretofore lepers were allowed'to
roam about wherever they pleased;
the General Assembly of 1892 en
acted, however, that the residents of
the State afflicted with leprosy should
be confined in the New Orleans pest
house, operated by Dr. J. C. Beard.
In other words, these outcasts of
humanity were farmed out to Dr.
Beard, and so many complaints were
made against him by the lepers them
selves, their relations and friends,
that the grand jury of March 1, 1893,
thought it proper to make an inves
tigation, and they reported that "the
condition of the place was so revolt
ing, and the neglect of its unfortu
nate inmates so shameful that they
deemed it advisable to send a com
mittee to investigate." After the
investigation, they made a report, in
which they said that "they regretted
that they saw no way of lodging a
criminal charge against the contract
or, but they stated to the public their
unqualified condemnation of his
[Dr. Beard's] rapacity."
This year, the lepers themselves
sent to the General Assembly a pe
tition, praying for relief, remonstra
ting that "they are human after all,
and not responsible for their condi
tron" and asking for its betterment.
It is in answer to this that the legis
lature framed a bill appropriating
$15,000 a year for the lepers' relief
and support, to be spent under the
supervision of a board of control
composed of seven members. So
far the legislature has done its duty;
but the bill has a strange and ex
press provision that the lepers shall
be farmed out on contract; that is,
that their care shall be given to the
lowest bidder, Dr. Beard, or anoth
er such, to make as much money as
he can out of these outcasts of
humanity. We wish no harm to the
framers of the bill, but as these poor
unfortunates say in their petition to
the Assembly, "we do not know whose
turn will come next," and how would
Mr. Framer of the bill feel if later
on he would be so unfortunate as to
be farmed out to Dr. Beard or suc
cessor? How would he feel if he
aw his wife or children, father or
mother, because afflicted with lepro
sy, turned over by law to Dr. Beard's
extraordinary tender care, when from
the grand jury's investigation, "$1 35
a day had to feed them all, and the
poor lepers were practically aband
oned." Is thereno philanthropy left
in the land, and can the State find
no one with charity and disinterest
edness enough in his heart to which
he can say, as the Samaritan said to
the innkeeper, "Here is my purse,
take care of this unfortunate brother,
and if that is not enough, I shall pay
thee when I come back?" Has the
medical fraternity, who in former
years in Louisiana has given so many
examples of heroism, no one left
who would consider it as an honor to
take charge of these unfortunate
brothers, alleviate their sufferings
and make pleasant their last days?
It is a downright shame and a
crime against lunmanity that the
State should exact that the lepers
hould be farmed out to the lowest
bidder, for no doubt, if an appeal
were made by proper authorities,
many good Samaritans would come
forward, who, not for filthy lucre,
but for the love of Him, would con
secrate their lives to the relief of the
lepers. Out of the many religious
d charitable institqons that we
ave in the State, soWe one would
certainly volunteer to take care of
the poor lepers, and tenderly nurse
thl as a labor of love.
Charity and philanthrophy are not
dead in Louisiana, and the legislas
ture should remember it, as it should
remember thai the poor lepers are
haman md citisens of this State,
auftirug through no cause of theirs.

TO DEAR JANIE.
DEAREST JANIE :-This has been for
me a regular feast-day of reading.
Early in the morning, long before the
sun was up, I was out on the porch.
The air.was not cool, even then, but
the gray sky, only touched with a
streak of rose-colored cloud,. was re
freshing as a background to the vivid
green of the willows.
On account of not being able to use
my eyes for the past week, 1 felt such
a hunger for books, to-day. as I have.
never felt before, antd, as is usual with
self-indulgent people, it was not many
minutes before I ,-fell too" at the
banquet.
First, the Bible, a chapter from the
New Testament. Janie, I think the
scriptures are the finest literature in
the world. This is as original as say
ing "-The sun is bright ;" but you must
know the scales have not long been
from off my eyes. I used to find it
impossible to read either testament.
Now, the words of Christ are the chief
inspiration of my life. They have a
truth, a justice and a poetic richness
about them which even Shakspeare
lacks. Sometime,Uust for an experi
ment, test the parables. They are so
perfect, and utthtly devoid of affecta
tron. The heart . of the matter is
probed at once-there is no waste or
extravagance of language. Christ
speaks of the grape vine, ard instantly
it rises'before us heavily ladened withats
fruited wine; also the picture of the
husbandman, of the withering branch
es, of the fresh leaves full of sap and
life and vigor.
One sees the blue sky of Gallilee
arching above it, and the laborers
sweating in their toil. It is altogether
proportionate, "I am the truelvine and
my Father is the husbandman. Every
branch in me that beareth not fruit, he
taketh away; and every branch that
beareth fruit, he purgeth it, that it may
bring forth more fruit." Isn't that
finished? In Shakespeare, there are
faults of rhetoric, mixed metaphoric,
obscure figures of speech, etc. In the
New Testament, never is there any
thing of the kind. Then, as I said,
Christ doesn't falsify life. (This state
ment is not made in the spirit of
irreverence, but in the spirit of a child
that has, for the first time, discovered
an old, old fact.)
He tells us the trials are many, the
world is harsh, the temptations, great.
In this life, Ho promises but two
spiritual blessings, peace and character.
In the world to come are found the
joys.
Then, Janie, what seems so beautiful
to me are the actual scenes of the
divine life.
The Infant in the manger with the
fair young mother bending over him.
The wise men of the Orient, in their
costly robes, kneeling before Him.
Their keen, dark narrow eyes showing
all the mysticism of the East. The
rich gifts of gold and frank incense
and myrrh lying on the floor. Above
the weather stained roof of the stall,
the glorious effulgence of the star of
Bethlehem, lending light to the dark
ness.
Afterwards the boy Christ, standing
in the Temple and expounding the
long history of the scriptures, Speak
ing without boldness, but with full
assurance to the old scribes that have
spent their lives in study.
Then, at the marriage of Gallilee,
blessing the water until it blushes into
wine.
Again the form, so beautiful and
strong; with the face of concentrated
power and sweetness looks from out
the Book of the centuries ; looks across
the sea, and at the rude fisheuen on its
margin, knows the troublous depths of
the waters and the troublous depths of
of the heart. Afterwards, the King df
Kings entering the gates of the city in
triumph. The long procession of gaily
dressed countrymen. The waving of
the palm branches, in honor of the
Nazarene. The joyous entrance into
Jeirusalem and the glad hosannas of
the multitude.
Then, the spreading of the long
table for the passover. The upset
ting of the salt cellar by Judas
Iscariot. The breaking of the bread,
the consecration of the wine, and
the washing of the feet of the disciples.
Too soon, after this, there follow
the agonized hour in dark Gethsemani,
the sword gleam of the enemies
weapons, beneath the pale cold moon.
The identification of the Saviour,
the doom fraught words, "Judas be
trayest thou the Son of Man with a
kissP"
Hurriedly, the mock trial before
Pontious Pilate, the false witnesses,
the purple robe, the crown of thorns,
the cruel yell of "Crucify Rim; Crucify
Him."
At last, the patient bearing of the
cross, by Simeon and its Victim, with
the reaching of the low brow of Gol
gatha. Then, the sinking of the
crosses in the ground. The anguish
of Mary, the mother of Jesus, and of
the other Mary and of John. The
long hours of torture. Finally the be.
ginning of the end. The veil of the
Temple is rest, the sun ceases to shine.
The earth trembles in cold blackness.
Above the fear stricken multitude
rings the cry, triumophant, of ,'Father,
into thy hands I commend my
spirit" and the perfect Chrise is
dead! Confusion over the land of the
Jews. The interment of the body.
The night watch of the Roman guards.
The desolate wanderings of the disci
plea. On the third day, early at sun
rise, the tbree women going toward
the sepalchre. The seeing of the
open doorway, and the empty vault;
also the vision of the angels, clothed
in' shining alaiment. The knowledge
of the ressurrection. The meeting of
Christrby his disciples. The magme of
His words and ",their hearts burned
within them as he spoke." A fewqore
days on this sad old earth, then, the
swinging open of the cloud doors of
Heaven and the sight o4nyriads of
worshipping angels. A inoment only,
and the God Inoarnate, hath entered
into His Everlasting Kingdotn.
Oh, Janie, it is very, very beautiful,
t•hs life of qiRed eemor. But good
iess, I have en so mueh time. to
tell it, that I will have.to leave out all
ahbout the other books; however, that
